Skip Caray Passes Away

Baseball lost another one of its voices on Sunday. Skip Caray, broadcaster for the Atlanta Braves, passed away in his sleep at his home in Atlanta on Sunday. Caray, the son of Harry and father of Chip, was 68 years old. Caray was in the middle of his 33rd season of announcing Braves games and was one of the great broadcasters in the game.

On May 13, 1991 all three generations of Carays were in the broadcast booth at Wrigley Field and called a game between the Braves and Cubs. Harry Caray passed away in February of 1998.

Quote of the Day

"People ask me a lot about the values I got from playing for the Cubs for so many years. The value I got out of it was patience. A lot of people these days are not very patient." - Ernie Banks
